  1. Linda, Mike and Lara, I am so sorry for your great loss. Someone once said, “The thread of life is fragile, but the fabric of life is eternal.” What a great “life giving” inheritance Buddy left for his friends and family! He gave gifts of love, hope, dedication, honesty and faith. We know that the direction of Buddy’s life led him not to the grave but to God. May Buddy Hampton rest in peace in God’s house.

    Linda, Mike and Lara, although we are filled with sadness for our loss we can take great joy in knowing Buddy is with God watching over you and his beautiful grand babies. He was an inspiration to us all and fought long and hard. It’s time for his rest now and finally everlasting peace. Love to you all.

  3. Jerry B. Hampton

    Linda, Mike, Lara and Paul, I know your hearts are broken but we know that my brother Buddy is at peace now. He left us wonderful memories. He was a loving husband and caring father and he cherished his grandchildren. To me he was a great brother, a truly caring human being. Like you I will miss him. He will always be in our hearts.
    May he Rest in Peace.

  4. Ron and Nataly Lang

    Nataly and I are saddened by your loss. I always admired Buddy for his candor and wit, and the athletic abilities I never had. We really wanted to see him again recently but will for sure see him later together with Christ. He probably already has Aunt Ruby, John, and the apostles rolling over with his charming humor.

    Linda, how saddened I was to hear of Buddy’s passing. He was a great friend to me in junior and senior high. I will always remember him joking and laughing and playing ball! He’s left a beautiful living legacy of a Christian husband, father and grandfather. I am so sorry for you. May God’s love heal your heart.
    In Him, Lucy Newton Doty

  9. Linda, Lara, and, Mike. I’m so sorry to hear of your loss of Buddy. I have so many wonderful memories of times spent with all of you. I consider Buddy one of the best friends I ever had, someone I had a lot of respect for, and a friend I will certainly miss. May God bless all of you. Rest in peace Buddy

  10. Buddy was a great mentor and friend to me as a new competitor in the fall of 1980, and for the balance of his time in the battery business. We had a very unusual relationship for competitors, freely exchanging information about prospective and former customers, as well as helping each other out when an inventory item was not in stock at our place, but in the inventory of the other–never paying for the items but simply borrowing and replacing at the next shipment. This was at Buddy’s insistence! When I lost my business partner by murder, Buddy even offered to deliver my orders for a few days so that I could recoup. Missed communicating in the last few years, but always grateful for our friendship.

  11. Don and Vivian Lang

    Viv and I want to express our sorrow and condolences to Linda and her family, as well as to Jerry and Skeet. It’s sad to hear when family whom Ron and I had been endeared to while growing up passes on. You guys have always been on our hearts and minds even though we had not been in touch much over the years. God Bless.

    Linda, I am so sorry to hear about you losing Buddy. I have such fond memories of him on the baseball team in high school. He was a good friend during that special time in my life.

    In our age of instant news I missed the story about Buddy’s death. He was one of my first real life heroes when he was playing baseball at Monterey. I listened to their games on the radio during 1963 season when Buddy was senior. He was a great baseball player and equally great person. My condolences to your family.
